The Social Media Exodus Has Begun. Here’s Where Everybody’s Going ~ Corbett Report


SHOW NOTES: https://www.corbettreport.com/?p=21349

10 years ago, everybody was on MySpace. 10 years from now, the Twitters and Facebooks and YouTubes of today will be dinosaurs, abandoned by users sick of censorship and centralized control. Thankfully, the alternatives to these social media dinosaurs are already here, and they’re blockchain-based, torrent friendly, decentralized and censorship resistant.

Quit social media | Dr. Cal Newport | TEDxTysons


‘Deep work’ will make you better at what you do. You will achieve more in less time. And feel the sense of true fulfilment that comes from the mastery of a skill.

Cal Newport is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Georgetown University. In addition to studying the theoretical foundations of our digital age, Newport also writes about the impact of these technologies on the world of work. His most recent book, Deep Work, argues that focus is the new I.Q. in the modern workplace and that the ability to concentrate without distraction is becoming increasingly valuable. He previously wrote So Good They Can’t Ignore You, a book which debunks the long-held belief that “follow your passion” is good advice, and three popular books of unconventional advice for students.

Facebook’s News Fact-Checkers Linked to CIA, Soros, Bezos, Washington Post


“… Who are they to tell me or you what you are allowed to read, digest and form your independent ideas about? This is a 21st Century reincarnation of the Spanish Inquisition, one by the real fake newsmakers–Washington Post, AP, ABCNews, Snopes.com, FactCheck.org, the CIA and friends.”
 
He thinks he can tell you what you’re allowed to read, a bonehead billionaire move
 
Originally appeared at New Eastern Outlook
The latest mantra of CIA-linked media since the “Pizzagate” leaks of data alleging that Hillary Clinton Campaign Manager John Podesta and other highly influential political persons in Washington were connected to an unusual pizza place near the White House run by a 41-year old James Achilles Alefantis called Comet Ping Pong, is the need to crack down (i.e. censorship) on what is being called “Fake News.”
 
The latest step in this internet censorship drive is a decision by the murky social media organization called Facebook to hire special organizations to determine if Facebook messages are pushing Fake News or not. Now it comes out that the “fact check” private organizations used by Facebook are tied to the CIA and CIA-related NGO’s including George Soros’ Open Society Foundations.
In the last weeks of the US Presidential campaign, Wikileaks released a huge number of emails linked to Clinton Campaign Manager, John Podesta. The contents of thousands of emails revealed detailed exchanges between Podesta and the oddly-influential Comet Ping Pong pizza place owner, Alefantis, as well as the Clinton campaign, which held fundraisers at Comet Ping Pong.
 
The Pizzagate scandal exploded in the final weeks of the US campaign as teams of private researchers documented and posted Facebook, Instagram and other data suggesting that Alefantis and Comet Ping Pong were at the heart of a pedophilia ring that implicated some of the most prominent politicians in Washington and beyond.
The New York Times and Washington Post moved swiftly to assert that the Pizzagate revelations were Fake News, quoting “anonymous sources” who supposedly said the CIA “believed” Russia was behind hackers who exposed emails and documents from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton’s campaign chair John Podesta.
 
Former NSA senior intelligence expert William Binney claimed the Podesta and Clinton campaign data were leaked, not hacked. The NSA, he pointed out, would immediately identify a hack, especially a foreign hack, and they have remained silent.
 
The uncovering and release to Wikileaks of the Podesta emails were immediately blamed on Russian intelligence by the CIA, and now by the US President, with not a shred of proof, and despite the fact that NSA. Wikipedia, whose content is often manipulated by US intelligence agencies, rapidly posted a page with the curious title, “Pizzagate (Conspiracy Theory).”
 
To make certain the neutral interested reader gets the message, the first line reads, “Pizzagate is a debunked conspiracy theory which emerged during the 2016 United States presidential election cycle, alleging that John Podesta’s emails, which were leaked by WikiLeaks, contain coded messages referring to human trafficking, and connecting a number of pizzerias in Washington, D.C. and members of the Democratic Party to a child-sex ring.”
 
‘Fake News’ Mantra Begins
 
My purpose in mentioning Pizzagate details is not to demonstrate the authenticity of the Pizzagate allegations. That others are doing with far more resources. Rather, it is to point out the time synchronicity of the explosive Pizzagate email releases by Julian Assange’s Wikileaks web blog, with the launch of a massive mainstream media and political campaign against what is now being called “Fake News.”
 
The cited New York Times article that Wikipedia cites as “debunking” the Pizzagate allegations states, “None of it was true. While Mr. Alefantis has some prominent Democratic friends in Washington and was a supporter of Mrs. Clinton, he has never met her, does not sell or abuse children, and is not being investigated by law enforcement for any of these claims. He and his 40 employees had unwittingly become real people caught in the middle of a storm of fake news.” The article contains not one concrete proof that the allegations are false, merely quoting Alefantis as the poor victim of malicious Fake News.
 
That New York Times story was accompanied by a series of articles such as “How Fake News Goes Viral: A Case Study.” Another headline reads, “Obama, With Angela Merkel in Berlin, Assails Spread of Fake News.”
 
Then on November 19, strong Clinton supporter, Facebook billionaire Mark Zuckerberg is quoted in a prominent article titled, “Facebook Considering Ways to Combat Fake News, Mark Zuckerberg Says.”
 
Facebook uses CIA Censors
 
Zuckerberg, CEO and founder of the world-leading social media site, Facebook.com, the world’s 5th wealthiest man at an estimated $50 billion, has now established a network of “Third Party Fact Checkers” whose job is to red flag any Facebook message of the estimated one billion people using the site, with a prominent warning that reads, “Disputed by Third-Party Fact Checkers.”
 
Facebook has announced that it is taking its censorship ques from something called The International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN). This IFCN, a new creation, has drafted a code of five principles for news websites to accept, and Facebook will work with “third-party fact checking organizations” that are signatories to that code of principles.
 
If we search under the name International Fact-Checking Network, we find ourselves at the homepage of something called the Poynter Institute for Media Studies in St. Petersburg, Florida.
 
OK. If we look a bit deeper we find that the Poynter Institute’s International Fact-Checking Network in turn, as its website states, gets money from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Google, the National Endowment for Democracy, the Omidyar Network, the Open Society Foundations of George Soros.
 
Oh my, oh my! Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation who partners with Soros in numerous nasty projects such as convincing African countries to accept Genetically Modified or GMO seeds? Google, whose origins date back to funding by the CIA and NSA as what intelligence researcher Nafeez Ahmed describes as a “plethora of private sector start-ups co-opted by US intelligence to retain ‘information superiority‘ “?
 
The Omidyar Foundation is the foundation of eBay founder and multi billionaire, Pierre Omidyar, which finances among other projects the online digital publication, The Intercept, launched in 2014 by Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras and Jeremy Scahill.
 
And the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), the US Government-financed “private” NGO behind every Color Revolution CIA regime change from the Ukraine Color Revolutions to the Arab Spring? The NED was a CIA project created in the 1980’s during the Reagan Administration as part of privatizing US intelligence dirty operations, to do, as Allen Weinstein, who drafted the Congressional legislation to establish the NED, noted in a candid 1991 Washington Post interview, “A lot of what we do today was done covertly 25 years ago by the CIA.”
 
And if we dig even deeper we find, lo and behold, the name George Soros, convicted hedge fund insider trader, tax-exempt philanthropist and giga-billionaire who seems to fund not only Hillary Clinton and virtually every CIA and US State Department Color Revolution from Russia to China to Iran through his network of Open Society Foundations including the 1990’s Jeffrey Sachs Shock Therapy plunder of Russia and most of former Communist East Europe.
 
Another one of the media working with Zuckerberg’s Facebook censorship of Fake News is the Washington Post, today owned by Amazon billionaire founder Jeff Bezos. Bezos is a major media business partner of….The US Central Intelligence Agency, a fact he omitted to inform about after taking over ownership of the most important newspaper in Washington.
 
Bezos’ Washington Post recently published a bizarre list of 200 websites it claimed generated Fake News. It refused to identify who gave them the list. Veteran Washington investigative reporter, Wayne Madsen, exposed the source of the McCarthy-style taboo list of so-called Fake News. It was a “website called PropOrNot.com that has links to the CIA and George Soros.”
 
It’s not merely the Pizzagate revelations that have triggered such a massive attack on independent Internet websites. It seems that back in January 2014 at the Davos World Economic Forum control of information on the Internet was a top item of discussion. At the time, Madsen noted, “With the impending demise of World Wide Web ‘net neutrality,’ which has afforded equal access for website operators to the Internet, the one percent of billionaire investors are busy positioning themselves to take over total control of news reporting on the Internet.”
 
It’s not even the foxes who are guarding the Internet Henhouse. It’s the werewolves of CIA and US Government censorship. Whether the explosive Pizzagate Podesta revelations merely triggered a dramatic acceleration in the timetable for the CIA’s planned “Fake News” operation as the successor to their 1980’s “Conspiracy Theory” linguistic discrediting operation, it’s clear this is no unbiased, objective, transparent public service to protect the Internet public from harmful content.
 
And, besides, who are they to tell me or you what you are allowed to read, digest and form your independent ideas about? This is a 21st Century reincarnation of the Spanish Inquisition, one by the real fake newsmakers–Washington Post, AP, ABCNews, Snopes.com, FactCheck.org, the CIA and friends.
 
I would say it’s an alarming development of cyber warfare, not by Russia, but by those CIA-run networks that are fomenting Fake News to demonize any and everyone who opposes Washington intelligence propaganda.

The 2016 NDAA becomes law, blacklisted “fake news” sites now subject to treason investigations.


aclu-1250x650

From: HNN
To: ACLU

Subject: We are scared sh*tless

In the past, you have represented me in Free Speech issues involving Occupy.

Yesterday, following pressure from the corporate media, legislation was quietly passed under the 2016 NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) authorizing the government to investigate and crackdown on those named in these blacklists for treason with no coverage by the corporate media.
I apparently have been under the false impression throughout my entire life that expressing my opinion was engaging in democracy which is a fundamental right guaranteed under the United States Constitution.

Now I live in fear that a Nazi Gestapo is watching over my every move, looking for an excuse to disappear me the way so many so-called “terrorists” have been since the 9-11 attacks.

To be clear, this is not hyperbole and this is not sensationalism. Being targeted in the NDAA is by no means a laughing matter. Those who have read my coverage, or the coverage of the blacklisted sites in question know that U.S. citizens have been assassinated or disappeared and locked away in secret C.I.A black sites under the authorization of the NDAA.

No, being targeted by the NDAA is not a trivial matter. It is a matter of very, very serious concern. I am not the only one concerned.

Independent news outlets in the United States are now being listed alongside of Al Qaeda, ISIS and Russia for spreading propaganda for threatening and engaging in warfare against the United States.
Myself and others who maintain or contribute to independent news outlets are gravely concerned we will soon be targeted for investigations by the government given the recent rhetoric from corporate media, several members of congress, and other government officials alleging we participated in a Russia propaganda campaign to influence the U.S. election and undermine American’s faith in democracy.

The 2016 NDAA, passed into law by both the House and the Senate, has authorized a witch hunt against independent news outlets for doing nothing more than exercising the same first amendment rights that the corporate media has failed to do.

For those not aware, many of those listed in these blacklists that are now officially targets of the United States government were not listed because they were spreading Russia propaganda or because they were spreading fake news.

Instead, they have been listed for the sole reason that they are competitors of the corporate media and these blacklists are being distributed solely so the corporate media can maintain their monopoly over online internet traffic and the $60 billion a year online advertising industry they control.
These blacklists have a chilling effect on Free Speech. Many on the blacklist do not spread Russia propaganda nor do they spread fake news.

Instead this is a blatant attempt by the corporate media to drive their competitors out of business.
While I have not been specifically named on these blacklists it is only a matter of time before I am.
I have a relationship with several outlets targeted on these blacklists. They have published my material. I have published theirs. They share my material, they link to it, they report on it. I share their material, I link to it and I report on it.

In private conversations, there is a common fear that we are now targets of a new era of cold war era McCarthyism even though the cold war ended decades ago.

We collectively appeal to the ACLU for legal representation as we are being targeted for nothing more than expressing our 1st amendment rights and are being targeted for the same.

This WILL be interesting!

BASE 2-11

Truth is stranger than fiction.

Foo-fighters.

There are stories of breakaway civilizations all over the world.

“Shadow government has access to off-world technology.”

Tesla technology.

Soft-disclosure is due to a requirement to inform and disclose without causing panic.

Do your research people. This is a gift. If a military unit begins an operation on foreign land with a specific amount of time and return that means they retreated or aborted the operation. If the people involved said there was reason to advanced our defenses, this indicates there was combat.

You can’t make it up, bend it another way, or come up with another explanation. Either Antarctica disappeared and they couldn’t find it or there was and is a situation.

Ancient technology below. People must mature emotionally otherwise the great power of technology and the mind acts to destroy. Thus, reality has been a show for a long time. If not since the “beginning”.

This is just the beginning!

They called in the sacred knowledge adepts to help find the truth.

Thus began the channeling of the ancient language and the blueprints for the device.

Everyone who just watched knows part of the truth that has been reserved from the public. Now you know and can help others by sharing the video or researching and sharing more information. None of this was hearsay or extrapolated, everything happened exactly as it was described or the entire record of the events were altered for everyone which requires a conspiracy to explain this.

This will be hearsay, but if you research Tesla and radionics you will see it’s all possible and plausible.

The “Fake News” List: The Orwellian War on Journalism and Skepticism


the-orwellian-war-on-skepticism

By Robert Parry, Wake Up World

Under the cover of battling “fake news,” the mainstream U.S. news media and officialdom are taking aim at journalistic skepticism when it is directed at the pronouncements of the U.S. government and its allies.

One might have hoped that the alarm about “fake news” would remind major U.S. news outlets, such as The Washington Post and The New York Times, about the value of journalistic skepticism. However, instead, it seems to have done the opposite.

The idea of questioning the claims by the West’s officialdom now brings calumny down upon the heads of those who dare do it. “Truth” is being redefined as whatever the U.S. government, NATO and other Western interests say is true. Disagreement with the West’s “group thinks”, no matter how fact-based the dissent is, becomes “fake news.”

So, we have the case of Washington Post columnist David Ignatius having a starry-eyed interview with Richard Stengel, the State Department’s Undersecretary for Public Diplomacy, the principal arm of U.S. government propaganda. Entitled “The truth is losing,” the column laments that the official narratives as deigned by the State Department and The Washington Post are losing traction with Americans and the world’s public.

Stengel, a former managing editor at Time magazine, seems to take aim at Russia’s RT network’s slogan, “question more,” as some sinister message seeking to inject cynicism toward the West’s official narratives. “They’re not trying to say that their version of events is the true one. They’re saying: ‘Everybody’s lying! Nobody’s telling you the truth!’,” Stengel said. “They don’t have a candidate, per se. But they want to undermine faith in democracy, faith in the West.”

No Evidence

Typical of these recent mainstream tirades about this vague Russian menace, Ignatius’s column doesn’t provide any specifics regarding how RT and other Russian media outlets are carrying out this assault on the purity of Western information. It’s enough to just toss around pejorative phrases supporting an Orwellian solution, which is to stamp out or marginalize alternative and independent journalism, not just Russian.

Ignatius writes:

“Stengel poses an urgent question for journalists, technologists and, more broadly, everyone living in free societies or aspiring to do so. How do we protect the essential resource of democracy — the truth — from the toxin of lies that surrounds it? It’s like a virus or food poisoning. It needs to be controlled. But how?

“Stengel argues that the U.S. government should sometimes protect citizens by exposing ‘weaponized information, false information’ that is polluting the ecosystem. But ultimately, the defense of truth must be independent of a government that many people mistrust. ‘There are inherent dangers in having the government be the verifier of last resort,’ he argues.”

By the way, Stengel is not the fount of truth-telling, as he and Ignatius like to pretend. Early in the Ukraine crisis, Stengel delivered a rant against RT that was full of inaccuracies — or what you might call “fake news.” Yet, what Stengel and various mainstream media outlets appear to be arguing for is the creation of a “Ministry of Truth” managed by mainstream U.S. media outlets and enforced by Google, Facebook and other technology platforms.

In other words, once these supposedly responsible outlets decide what the “truth” is, then questioning that narrative will earn you “virtual” expulsion from the marketplace of ideas, possibly eliminated via algorithms of major search engines or marked with a special app to warn readers not to believe what you say, a sort of yellow Star of David for the Internet age.

And then there’s the possibility of more direct (and old-fashioned) government enforcement by launching FBI investigations into media outlets that won’t toe the official line. (All of these “solutions” have been advocated in recent weeks.)

On the other hand, if you do toe the official line that comes from Stengel’s public diplomacy shop, you stand to get rewarded with government financial support. Stengel disclosed in his interview with Ignatius that his office funds “investigative” journalism projects. “How should citizens who want a fact-based world combat this assault on truth?” Ignatius asks, adding: “Stengel has approved State Department programs that teach investigative reporting and empower truth-tellers.”

Buying Propaganda

After reading Ignatius’s column, I submitted a question to the State Department asking for details on this “journalism” and “truth-telling” funding that is coming from the U.S. government’s top propaganda shop, but I have not received an answer. But we do know that the U.S. government has been investing tens of millions of dollars in various media programs to undergird Washington’s desired narratives.

For instance, in May 2015, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) issued a fact sheet summarizing its work financing friendly journalists around the world, including “journalism education, media business development, capacity building for supportive institutions, and strengthening legal-regulatory environments for free media.”

USAID estimated its budget for “media strengthening programs in over 30 countries” at $40 million annually, including aiding “independent media organizations and bloggers in over a dozen countries,” In Ukraine before the 2014 coup ousting elected President Viktor Yanukovych and installing a fiercely anti-Russian and U.S.-backed regime, USAID offered training in “mobile phone and website security,” skills that would have been quite helpful to the coup plotters.

USAID, working with currency speculator George Soros’s Open Society, also has funded the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project, which engages in “investigative journalism” that usually goes after governments that have fallen into disfavor with the United States and then are singled out for accusations of corruption. The USAID-funded OCCRP collaborates with Bellingcat, an online investigative website founded by blogger Eliot Higgins.

Higgins has spread misinformation on the Internet, including discredited claims implicating the Syrian government in the sarin attack in 2013 and directing an Australian TV news crew to what appeared to be the wrong location for a video of a BUK anti-aircraft battery as it supposedly made its getaway to Russia after the shoot-down of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 in 2014.

the-orwellian-war-on-skepticism-fake-news-ron-paul-fb-jpg

Despite his dubious record of accuracy, Higgins has gained mainstream acclaim, in part, because his “findings” always match up with the propaganda theme that the U.S. government and its Western allies are peddling. Higgins is now associated with the Atlantic Council, a pro-NATO think tank which is partially funded by the U.S. State Department.

Beyond funding from the State Department and USAID, tens of millions of dollars more are flowing through the U.S.-government-funded National Endowment for Democracy, which was started in 1983 under the guiding hand of CIA Director William Casey. NED became a slush fund to help finance what became known, inside the Reagan administration, as “perception management”, the art of controlling the perceptions of domestic and foreign populations.

The Emergence of StratCom

Last year, as the New Cold War heated up, NATO created the Strategic Communications Command in Latvia to further wage information warfare against Russia and individuals who were contesting the West’s narratives.

As veteran war correspondent Don North reported in 2015 regarding this new StratCom:

“The U.S. government has come to view the control and manipulation of information as a ‘soft power’ weapon, merging psychological operations, propaganda and public affairs under the catch phrase ‘strategic communications.’

“This attitude has led to treating psy-ops — manipulative techniques for influencing a target population’s state of mind and surreptitiously shaping people’s perceptions — as just a normal part of U.S. and NATO’s information policy.”

Now, the European Parliament and the U.S. Congress are moving to up the ante, passing new legislation to escalate “information warfare.” Last Wednesday, U.S. congressional negotiators approved $160 million to combat what they deem foreign propaganda and the alleged Russian campaign to spread “fake news.” The measure is part of the National Defense Authorization Act and gives the State Department the power to identify “propaganda” and counter it.

This bipartisan stampede into an Orwellian future for the American people and the world’s population follows a shoddily sourced Washington Post article that relied on a new anonymous group that identified some 200 Internet sites, including some of the most prominent American independent sources of news, as part of a Russian propaganda network. Typical of this new McCarthyism, the report lacked evidence that any such network actually exists but instead targeted cases where American journalists expressed skepticism about claims from Western officialdom.

Consortiumnews.com was included on the list apparently because we have critically analyzed some of the claims and allegations regarding the crises in Syria and Ukraine, rather than simply accept the dominant Western “group thinks.” Also on the “black list” were such quality journalism sites as Counterpunch, Truth-out, Truthdig, Naked Capitalism and ZeroHedge along with many political sites ranging across the ideological spectrum.

The Fake-News Express

Normally such an unfounded conspiracy theory would be ignored, but – because The Washington Post treated the incredible allegations as credible – the smear has taken on a life of its own, reprised by cable networks and republished by major newspapers.

But the unpleasant truth is that the mainstream U.S. news media is now engaged in its own fake-news campaign about “fake news.” It’s publishing bogus claims invented by a disreputable and secretive outfit that just recently popped up on the Internet. If that isn’t “fake news,” I don’t know what is.

Yet, despite the Post’s clear violations of normal journalistic practices, surely, no one there will pay a price, anymore than there was accountability for the Post reporting as flat fact that Iraq was hiding WMD in 2002-2003. Fred Hiatt, the editorial-page editor most responsible for that catastrophic “group think,” is still in the same job today.

Last week, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews featured the spurious Washington Post article in a segment that – like similar rehashes –didn’t bother to get responses from the journalists being slandered. I found that ironic since Matthews repeatedly scolds journalists for their failure to look skeptically at U.S. government claims about Iraq possessing WMD as justification for the disastrous Iraq War. However, now Matthews joins in smearing journalists who have applied skepticism to U.S. and Western propaganda claims about Syria and/or Ukraine.

While the U.S. Congress and the European Parliament begin to take action to shut down or isolate dissident sources of information – all in the name of “democracy” – a potentially greater danger is that mainstream U.S. news outlets are already teaming up with technology companies, such as Google and Facebook, to impose their own determinations about “truth” on the Internet. Or, as Ignatius puts it in his column reflecting Undersecretary for Public Diplomacy Stengel’s thinking:

“The best hope may be the global companies that have created the social-media platforms.

“‘They see this information war as an existential threat,’ says Stengel. … The real challenge for global tech giants is to restore the currency of truth. Perhaps ‘machine learning‘ [presumably a reference to algorithms] can identify falsehoods and expose every argument that uses them. Perhaps someday, a human-machine process will create what Stengel describes as a ‘global ombudsman for information.’”

Ministry of Truth

An organization of some 30 mainstream media companies already exists, including not only The Washington Post and The New York Times but also the Atlantic Council-connected Bellingcat, as the emerging arbiters – or ombudsmen – for truth, something Orwell described less flatteringly as a “Ministry of Truth.” The New York Times has even editorialized in support of Internet censorship, using the hysteria over “fake news” to justify the marginalization or disappearance of dissident news sites.

It now appears that this 1984-ish “MiniTrue” will especially target journalistic skepticism when applied to U.S. government and mainstream media “group thinks.” Yet, in my four decades-plus in professional journalism, I always understood that skepticism was a universal journalistic principle, one that should be applied in all cases, whether a Republican or a Democrat is in the White House or whether some foreign leader is popular or demonized.

As we have seen in recent years, failure to ask tough questions and to challenge dubious claims from government officials and mainstream media outlets can get lots of people killed, both U.S. soldiers and citizens of countries invaded or destabilized by outsiders.

To show skepticism is not the threat to democracy that Undersecretary Stengel and columnist Ignatius appear to think it is.

Whether you like or dislike RT’s broadcasts – or more likely have never seen one – a journalist really can’t question its slogan: “question more.” Questioning is the essence of journalism and, for that matter, democracy.

North Dakota officials hope to quell pipeline protests with fines


Editorial by Mani Wanji ZephierThe Governor of North Dakota is so concerned about the “health and well-being” of the camp, he is starting to blockade supplies of firewood, food, medical supplies and water. Yeah, turning off heat, food, water and medical supplies to 10,000 people, over half being women and children is a REALLY good way to protect peoples health and well being. 😠

Is that even legal?! I would think it’s illegal to blockade in ten thousand people with no heat,food,water or medical???

(UPDATE just saw that According to Article 54 of the Geneva Convention, withholding food from civilians is prohibited and is considered an Act of War.)

I just also read Bismark Tribune article on the blockade where the Governor’s spokesperson said, “If they freeze to death, it’s their own fault”.

No. It’s YOUR fault, #NorthDakota#WhiteHouse#Obama#MortonCountySherriff#NDNationalGuard

Seriously this is 2016 they act like it’s the 1800’s. They did this a lot to native people back then. That’s what started the great Indian War, and my ancestor, Cut Nose, was hung at Mankato for raiding for food for the starving people.

He’s also not allowing them to plow the roads from the snow storm within a few miles of camp, hopefully supplies will be able to get in OK through the reservation on the back way. Maybe the tribe can plow?

North Dakota protesters defy governor’s order
01:59
By Terray Sylvester | CANNON BALL, N.D.

North Dakota officials on Tuesday moved to block supplies from reaching oil pipeline protesters at a camp near the construction site, threatening to use hefty fines to keep demonstrators from receiving food, building materials and even portable bathrooms.

Activists have spent months protesting plans to route the $3.8 billion Dakota Access Pipeline beneath a lake near the Standing Rock Sioux reservation, saying the project poses a threat to water resources and sacred Native American sites.

State officials said on Tuesday they would fine anyone bringing prohibited items into the main protest camp following Governor Jack Dalrymple’s “emergency evacuation” order on Monday. Earlier, officials had warned of a physical blockade, but the governor’s office backed away from that.

Law enforcement would take a more “passive role” than enforcing a blockade, said Maxine Herr, a spokeswoman for the Morton County Sheriff’s Department.

“The governor is more interested in public safety than setting up a road block and turning people away,” Herr said by telephone.

Officers will stop vehicles they believe are headed to the camp and inform drivers they are committing an infraction and could be fined $1,000.

These penalties should serve as a hindrance, according to Cecily Fong, a spokeswoman for the North Dakota Department of Emergency Services.

“So that effectively is going to block that stuff (supplies), but there is not going to be a hard road block,” Fong said by telephone.

A spokeswoman from the Standing Rock Sioux tribe was not immediately available for comment.

North Dakota Governor-elect Doug Burgum, a Republican, declined to comment.

The 1,172-mile (1,885 km) pipeline project, owned by Texas-based Energy Transfer Partners LP, is mostly complete except for a segment planned to run under Lake Oahe, a reservoir formed by a dam on the Missouri River.

Thousands of people are protesting at camps located on U.S. Army Corps of Engineers land, north of the Cannonball River in Cannon Ball, North Dakota. The main protest camp near Cannon Ball is called Oceti Sakowin, the original name of the Sioux, meaning Seven Council Fires.

Protest leaders said state officials and local law enforcement officers were “bullying” demonstrators with the threat of fines.

“It’s bogus and I don’t know about the legality of it,” said Kandi Mossett, an organizer with Indigenous Environmental Network. “We’re not afraid. We’re moving in and out of the camp at will. So people shouldn’t be afraid of coming and supporting the water protectors. They’ve been bullying us since day one.”

‘HARSH WINTER CONDITIONS’

Image result for standing rock

Dalrymple’s evacuation order was issued on Monday due to the “harsh winter conditions.” Snow and wind gusts up to 45 mph (73 kph) were forecast for Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.

Despite the sub-freezing temperatures, law enforcement on Nov. 21 used water cannons to disperse protesters who had blockaded a highway.

Demonstrators and law enforcement have clashed over the months since protests began, with demonstrators claiming excessive use of force by law enforcement.

On Tuesday, the National Lawyers Guild filed a class action in U.S. District Court in North Dakota on behalf of injured protesters, claiming local authorities in Morton and Stutsman counties used excessive force.

The civil rights complaint said there were no orders to disperse or warnings issued before local police turned water cannons and tear gas on the protest. The lawsuit seeks compensatory damages.

Stutsman County Auditor Casey Bradley said the county sheriff’s office was unaware of the lawsuit and unable to comment on the allegations.

Officers were justified in using water cannons because of the threat posed by demonstrators, Fong and Herr said. Law enforcement gave numerous warnings for protesters to disperse, they said.

North Dakota officials have issued several requests for additional help from federal law enforcement in light of the demonstrators. However, the Army Corps said Monday its order to evacuate the primary protest camp by Dec. 5 would not include forcibly removing people from the land.

The Obama administration in September postponed final approval of a Army Corps’ permit required to allow tunneling beneath the lake, a move intended to give federal officials more time to consult tribal leaders.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said in a Tuesday news briefing that Obama believes law enforcement has “an obligation” to show restraint and protesters have a “responsibility” to protest peacefully.

In a related protest, prosecutors suspended charges against Deia Schlosberg, a documentary maker arrested while filming as environmental protesters attempted to shut down the flow of oil through pipelines carrying crude from Canada to the United States in October.

Gene Roddenberry Based Star Trek on Secret US Navy Space Fleet ~ by Dr Michael Salla


Rodenberry based Start Trek on US Navy

September 8 marks the 50th anniversary of the creation of the Star Trek science fiction series that began in 1966. There is significant evidence that its creator, Gene Roddenberry, did not simply come up with the idea of Star Trek on his own. Instead he was encouraged to create the series based on classified information surrounding the development of a secret U.S. Navy space fleet that would build a broad extraterrestrial alliance. This led Roddenberry to come up with the idea of a United Federation of Planets, with its military headquarters in San Francisco.

Roddenberry began developing ideas for a science fiction show after one of his series had bombed in 1964:

The only reason Roddenberry created Star Trek, at least initially, was to sell another series to a network.  He was, if not desperate, anxious… He had just failed with The Lieutenant, for Norman Felton’s Arena Productions … No one was clamoring for another series from Roddenberry, or even his scripts. His agent suggested he come up with a space series… This may have led to what The Outer Limits historians insist are the accurate — if generally unknown — accounts of Roddenberry hanging out at times on the set of The Outer Limits. When I learned this, it wasn’t hard to imagine that series creator, and executive producer, Leslie Stevens … was someone that Roddenberry may have sought to emulate.

This account is confirmed by Tom Seldon, one of the production assistants of The Outer Limits:

Star Trek was in fact an outgrowth of The Outer Limits. Gene Roddenberry watched our dailies all the time and took a lot of phone calls from our screening room. He was spurring his imagination and checking on the incredible quality control we had. I wondered why he was there but he was there more often than not during the time he was coming up with Star Trek.

The following firmly suggests that Roddenberry and Stevens had reached a business arrangement for the planned sci-fi series, Star Trek:

Bearing in mind that Roddenberry was contracted to a rival studio and a rival network, the odds are essentially slim to none that the two men didn’t have some kind of business arrangement, whether in writing or not.

If Stevens and Roddenberry had indeed developed a business arrangement for the new Star Trek series, this is where Stevens background becomes critical in understanding the nature of their arrangement. Stevens was the son of a U.S. Navy Vice Admiral Leslie Stevens who died in 1956.

Admiral Leslie Stevens

Vice Admiral Stevens was a contemporary of Rear Admiral Rico Botta who according to a former aerospace engineer, William Tompkins, oversaw a covert Navy espionage program out of Nazi Germany to learn about Nazi flying saucers during World War II. The 29 Navy spies in the program had not only learned that the Nazis had developed up to 30 different flying saucer prototypes, but were also being directly assisted by an extraterrestrial civilization comprising Reptilian hominoids in building secret bases in Antarctica.  READ MORE

 

 

YouTube Unleashes Army of Trolls Who Get Points to Shut Down “Controversial Speech”


DOCUMENTING THE DOWNFALL
yttrolls

by Melissa Melton

Everyone can feel the walls closing in on the Internet like the trash compactor scene in Star Wars. Everything from government spying to thought crimes to outright censorship is turning what was once referred to as the new Wild West into an increasingly smaller cybernetic control grid.

Now YouTube isn’t just disincentivizing what it deems “controversial speech”; YouTube is actually incentivizing trolls to “help” shut down what it deems controversial speech.

In other words, YouTube is literally feeding the trolls in order to create its very own troll army.

Let me explain.

Recently you may have heard many YouTubers and alternative media bloggers complaining about having their videos demonitized and their ad revenue taken away because their content is considered “not advertiser-friendly”.

Here is a screenshot of YouTube’s policy on that for the specifics:

ytmonetization

Notice that last bullet says, “Controversial or sensitive subjects and events, including subjects related to war, political conflicts, natural disasters and tragedies, even if graphic imagery is not shown.”

At Truthstream, when we heard people complaining about this, we were actually confused. You see, YouTube has been doing this to us for two years now at least. There is a long list of topics that YouTube has summarily declared are “not advertiser-friendly”. This would include any videos discussing war of any kind (including simply criticizing it or looking at things from a historical perspective etc.), videos discussing mass shooting events, terror attacks, the phrase “false flag” or anything at all whatsoever to do with 9/11, even if it has nothing whatsoever to do with the September 11, 2001 attacks.

And other random stuff too, because as you can clearly see, the ambiguous way this policy is written leaves the door open for almost anything to get demonetized. Many on YouTube use this ad revenue as a way to keep going and offset the hours of time it takes them to create content for the site. Now YouTube is basically saying if you want to make money on the site, you can, you just better not talk about anything YouTube (aka Google, so aka the government) deems “controversial” while doing it.

This hasn’t stopped us from putting up videos about these topics, but a lot of people will be forced to fall in line. Obviously they know demonetizing political videos is going to have a chilling effect on free speech about political topics. On top of that, they are pretty choosy on the way this punishment is dolled out and to whom. There’s a definite and obvious agenda behind it.

Well, now YouTube has taken another giant step toward Orwellian censorship by unveiling its YouTube Heroes program. They even made a condescending cartoon about it with cheesy animations set to adult contemporary music that looks like a generic commercial for buying cheap Chinese crap at Target.

Take a look, but make sure haven’t just eaten because the cheesiness overkill might make you want to throw up in your mouth a little:

In short, YouTube just incentivized being a YouTube troll… although obviously they prefer the (I think misused) term “hero”.

People will now get points for reporting videos that don’t follow YouTube’s ambiguous guidelines.

screen-shot-2016-09-30-at-1-57-03-am

screen-shot-2016-09-30-at-1-56-49-am

This guy pretty much sums up how we feel about this:

We would do a video on this to report on it, but the company behind the cheesy animation has decided to go around flagging everyone who does for a copyright violation.

Oh the irony.

So among the things people will receive points for is “reporting inappropriate videos accurately”. Once they earn a certain number of points, they get to move to the next level. When you get to level 3, you get to “unlock super tools” like the power to “mass flag videos”.

screen-shot-2016-09-30-at-1-59-14-am

How can someone even mass flag multiple videos…? It implies they haven’t seen them all to know they are worthy of being flagged first!

In a world that incentivizes a snitch troll culture, where people will earn points toward more “power” for seeing something and saying something, everyone will become a target. People will turn others in, flagging videos they don’t agree left and right with just to get the points!

And this is how free speech just died on YouTube.

The video above is so unpopular by the way, that YouTube disabled the comments for it… That’s right, YouTube disabled the comments section of its own video! It has 2,940,652 views with 837,768 thumbs down and just 25,083 thumbs up (at the time of writing this). That’s less than one percent of viewers giving this video a thumbs up.

screen-shot-2016-09-30-at-1-56-06-am

In short, we are growing pretty sick and tired of YouTube around here.

As if all of this isn’t bad enough, YouTube does not uphold fair use laws at all. It follows a guilty-until-proven-innocent system where anyone for any reason can strike a video down or steal its monetization and the burden of proof is on the content creator, not the copyright claimant.

We recently had a video clip taken down that we had never monetized of Putin talking on RT.com, a channel that allows for its content to be reposted. Someone had added English subtitles to Putin’s Russian. The video appeared to come from RT and had been mirrored on multiple different YouTube channels across the site, so we uploaded it on ours as well but with a different title under fair use for criticism.

Eleven months later, the person who added the subtitles put a copyright strike on our channel as if that person had a right to RT’s video of Putin simply because she added subtitles. In the real world, that isn’t how copyrights work, and the clip is fair use anyway, but the burden of proof was on us to then start something that we were warned by YouTube is a legal proceeding to prove we have the right to upload a clip that isn’t even owned by the person who claimed copyright. Meanwhile, our channel received a strike and our uploading privileges were restricted until we could prove our “innocence”.

The same thing happens any time we try to report on scientific research (publicly funded, just the way) done at Stanford University. They have a bot that blanket copyright strikes ANYONE who uses any of their clips for fair use reporting.

It is for these myriad reasons that the series of documentaries we have been working very hard on for the past year will NOT be uploaded to YouTube. At least not first. No way.

We are creating a series of films (one is in post right now!) that are definitely on “controversial subjects” with fair use clips, the whole nine yards. The last thing we need after a year of driving back and forth across the country filming and interviewing people and spending hours upon hours at the library researching and writing and editing footage until five in the morning night after night in all of our free time is to have our film demonetized, attacked by YouTube’s troll army, and struck down for bogus copyright claims that spit in the face of Section 107 of the Copyright Act of 1976 which allows for “fair use” for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research.

But… more news on that coming soon.

In the meantime, YouTube has been an invaluable platform for many especially in the alternative media to talk about the things the mainstream media won’t. That’s the whole reason I started this blog back in 2011 when no one except myself and maybe my mom read it. That’s the reason I called it TRUTHstream Media. Because I was searching for the truth. I still am. Now Aaron is with me and I’m surrounded by an awesome community of truthseekers like the amazing gang at Activist Post, Daisy Luther, Brandon Smith of Alt Market, Gary Franchi of Next News Network, Corbett Report, The Daily Sheeple (now with Joe Joseph of Freedom Link!), Popeye of FederalJack.com, and so so many others.

I am thankful to have a place like YouTube where we can question the reality we’re given and share our thoughts and research with the world and you guys talk back. I can just see a day coming in the not too distant future where that will no longer be possible unless we fall in line and stop talking about the “controversial subjects”.

Well friends, you know us. That simply isn’t going to happen here at Truthstream Media.

Sad, isn’t it? The Internet’s Wild West days are over. Well, there’s a reason it was called the World WideWEB after all…

Step Out of the Echo Chamber


 

On a recent edition of The Fight Spot, I wrote about one of the aspects of doing our best creative work: stepping out of the echo chamber.

The dictionary definition of echo chamber is “an enclosed space for producing reverberation of sound.”

An enclosed place where the majority of what you hear is unoriginal (a multi-dimensional repeating of what was once said) and whatever you say is echoed back to you.

Echo Chamber is also a metaphor. Here’s the Wikipedia definition: In media, an echo chamber is a situation in which information, ideas, or beliefs are amplified or reinforced by transmission and repetition inside an “enclosed” system, where different or competing views are censored or disallowed.

By nature, each of us tend to sit in the center of our own echo chamber.

When we get too absorbed in the platform, the new, and the feedback, then the echo chamber becomes the place where we compare ourselves by ourselves. It becomes noisy. Inspiration runs dry. Our creativity gets stifled. We grow cynical and sarcastic. And it serves as an ever-present distraction and pacifier from doing work that matters.

When we look to the echo chamber as our sole source of inspiration, it’s like looking to a bag of chips for our sole source of nourishment. The constant barrage of our timelines and inboxes — those “little updates” — are like snacks and junk food. They will fill you up but they are not a significant form of nourishment.

How can you become a voice — how can you provide something original, unique, and valuable — when all your inputs are unoriginal echoes?

The inspiration and motivation needed for your best creative work will not come from the echo chamber.

  • Limit your feeds and inboxes. Subscribe only to the people and sources of input that enrich your life and give you the motivation and tools to do your best creative work.
  • Seek out inspiration from offline sources. Such as books, nature, conferences, silence, prayer and meditation, relationships, journaling, building your own projects, etc.
  • Create something every day. Write in your journal, come up with 10 ideas, take a photograph, draw a sketch, etc.
  • Curate what you share. Be a source of motivation, encouragement, and equipping to those who follow you. Put thought into the work you publish. Even your tweets and Facebook updates can be nuggets that motivate, equip, and encourage.

A Challenge to You

At some point this week, do one of these things:

  1. Unsubscribe from one RSS feed or email newsletter, or unfollow one person on Twitter or Facebook.

    (You should feel free to unsubscribe from my site / newsletter / unfollow me on Twitter — if what I am writing isn’t helpful to you at this time, or isn’t providing you with the motivation and tools to do your best creative work, then cut it out. You only have so much time, and the last thing I want is to be a non-helpful source of input in your day.)

  2. Take 15 minutes to find inspiration from an offline source. Read a chapter from a favorite book, put your phone in another room and just sit in silence, take a walk outside, etc.
  3. Create something. Write a journal entry, take a photograph, draw something, come up with 10 ideas for little ways you can show your friends and family how much you love them (you don’t even have to act on the 10 ideas you come up with).
  4. Do something to encourage or equip someone else.

Before you move on from this article, decide which one of the above challenges you’re going to do and make a time in your week for when you’re going to do it.

Blind patriotism is the highest form of tyranny. The walls of the military/medical/industrial complex are starting to crumble from countless directions, but will the slumbering population rise to the occasion and help with the ongoing effort of the few to carry the torch of awakening forward? The exceptionally powerful and moving VAXXED documentary is rapidly undermining the previous power structure programming of the population in regard to the false conclusions of vaccination safety. Most medical industry personnel are extremely uncomfortable with any information that is critical of vaccinations, no matter how credible and irrefutable the data is. When trying to pass on flyers on the VAXXED film screenings to medical office professionals the typical response is hostility. I and other activists know this first hand as we continue to distribute VAXXED flyers to every possible locations. What are those in power doing to try and slow down the awakening of the population? A recent study from Oxford  is beyond shocking. The study suggests and concludes governments have the right to eliminate free speech in regard to vaccine safety issues, this should be chilling for us all.
Once people are fully awakened to the vaccination safety deception, they are much more likely to recognize and face the ongoing climate engineering threat. On the wider horizon, the climate chaos and biosphere implosion continues to press further and further into uncharted territory. A recent jet stream pattern took the upper air current from the northern hemisphere across the equator and deep into the southern hemisphere. An extreme jet stream pattern also just inflicted record shattering high temperatures (yet again) in the Pacific Northwest.  Though many mainstream media sources will predictably claim that such a jet stream patterns are “normal” and “not unusual”, we must remember that the same sources claim that climate engineering is not going on. 1000 year floods in the Eastern US are also a telling indication of the ongoing climate engineering assault. This is especially true when we have radar maps that clearly show radio frequency manipulation of the precipitation that delivered the deadly deluge to West Virginia.  Why would any rational individual continue to accept the lies of the power structure controlled mainstream media mechanism of mass programming and propaganda whose job it is to systematically deny lethal threats to the population? Threats that we collectively face, like the verifiably harmful vaccinations and the ongoing climate engineering assault. What did world renowned astrophysicist Stephan Hawking have to state about the future of the human race if there is not a total course correction?
Blind unquestioning obedience to the official narrative on any issue is wrong. Blind obedience to the power structure that is decimating our planet and poisoning our children (with types of vaccinations proven beyond reasonable doubt to be harmful) is nothing short of total tyranny. Sounding the alarm for the greater good is not just an option, it is an obligation. Make your voice heard.

Plan To Maintain The Safety And Well-Being Of The Populace During The Financial Reset & Mass Arrests

A PLAN TO MAINTAIN THE SAFETY AND WELL-BEING OF THE POPULACE DURING THE FINANCIAL RESET

This is a unique plan that my Intel operative ‘Cobra’ asked me to put together forwww.prepareforchange.net. It originally was intended to be specific to me given the industry I am in, but I have broadened the scope to generalize it; my hope is that others so inclined can attempt their own variations regardless of where they live and their personal circumstances.

The primary goal of this document is try and work within the existing corporate power structures to create a way to quickly network across cities, states, regions, and even countries such that we can deal promptly and ethically with the most pressing issues. (Note – the end of this document will go in a direction that may be surprising but is of utmost importance before we as humans get to work.) Given my experience as well as that of others within corporate hierarchies, it seems apparent that within any corporation, company or non-profit entity that there are people who have connections and/or memberships in various affinity groups, trade unions, professional accreditation organizations, and even involvement with local politics or community organizations such as local Chambers of Commerce. These need to be leveraged immediately so as many people can be brought together as possible to quickly address the immediate challenges.

This is going to be necessary because the financial/banking system is going to be shut down for a while. For additional details, please see the Community Leaders Brief (http://www.prepare4change.com/) which has been prepared in anticipation of what has been loosely called by Intel Insiders “The Event” given the long-term impact it will have on the planet. Please read the CLB document in its entirety before proceeding further as it succinctly describes what is needed of community leaders while the financial/banking system is shut down and ultimately rebooted.

As you can imagine after having read the CLB, what you are witnessing on the news (likely for the first time) will have permanent ramifications for society going forward. It is anticipated that that these changes will result in massive improvements in the standard of living globally for all humans as resources will be allocated toward the creation and maintenance of infrastructure and institutions which will ultimately eliminate poverty, war, and environmental destruction. Even more astounding will be the vast number of revelations and disclosures which will forever change the way we view governments’ accountability to the citizenry.

But before we get to that ‘Promised Land’ of the future, we need to get through the present. The remainder of this document will focus on short-term tools which can be used to mitigate any pain, suffering, and overall inconvenience caused by such a massive reset of government and financial institutions.

To the end of illustrating the task at hand, I have included a diagram below of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs:

Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs

What I am asking every single person to do is a self-inventory regarding what is needed to remain alive and healthy during a period where modes of commerce which we take for granted are simply not working. While all areas of the pyramid diagram above will come into play at some point, the base represents those things that are most important for everyone. Despite the inconveniences involved, we need to keep things running. Money does not keep society together – people do. As long as we work together in an organized manner, the ingenuity and creativity inherent in our species will allow us to figure out solutions. Nothing is unsolvable as long as there is respectful and ethical collaboration among key decision-makers.

To this end, here is a timeline of how I expect things to play out over the first days after the financial system is shut down and arrests begin:

EVENT (0-3 HOURS IN; Note that my scenario assumes the ‘start’ to be between 7 AM & 9 AM Eastern Standard Time because the vast majority of arrests within the U.S. will be taking place in New York City and Washington D.C. I anticipate other major activity centers to be London, Rome, Paris, Brussels, and Zurich – but this is only an educated guess on my part.)

People will see that something big is going on as major arrests are happening and the banking system shutdown is announced via the news – then they will look out the window and have it reinforced merely by turning around. During that time anyone who is already aware of the EVENT should reach out to respected executives or civic leaders and state that they have a solid working knowledge about what is going on. Ask to meet with various corporate and/or civic leaders to explain the situation as clearly as possible; utilize technology to the best extent possible and have conference calls or video conferences where they can explain what is going on and what is most necessary immediately.

To the greatest extent possible, include electronic or physical copies of the CLB as well as this document. Since we are unsure of whether the respective ‘Prepare For Change’ websites will be up and running due to heavy usage at first, it is recommended that people download copies to their computer or phone and spread these downloaded versions as quickly and widely as possible. DO NOT WORRY about copyright issues or intellectual property concerns; these are meant to be public domain documents that are freely accessible to everyone. The more people are aware of what’s going on and what is urgently needed the easier it will be to create task forces at a local level to deal with needs specific to a wide variety of geographic areas.

To give a flavor of what I will be doing personally, I’ve laid the groundwork through a series of cryptic statements and communications extending all the way back to 2012 with friends, family, and colleagues. Despite the fact that 99% of these encounters resulted in someone asking me if I’m sound of mind, all of these were intentionally designed and executed in such a way that I can quickly and easily say to people when things really start happening:

“Hey, remember when I asked you what you think would happen during a hypothetical so-and-so? Well, turn on the news – it’s not hypothetical anymore. Here are some documents I want you to send to everyone you know. Focus first on those in existing leadership positions or who are ‘talkers’. Anyone you know who is a gossip-monger can be a huge asset at this time, because they can spread this to tons of people very quickly. Have people utilize texting, Facebook, Twitter, email – any medium possible to spread the message. Simply seeing the news will not make people understand this is real; getting documents that were created before this EVENT started from friends, family and colleagues will make people understand that THIS IS VERY REAL AND IT IS HISTORY IN THE MAKING. Please assist to the greatest degree possible”

Once I get some of my friends and family to start their calling/contract trees, my focus will shift to my employer and the vast network of people within my industry:

Initially I plan to have a conference call (which should take roughly 20-30 minutes) with my local site leaders. Once I have briefed them on developments, I would ask to speak to the CEO/CFO/COO and their direct reports – this will be done via conference call as my company’s leadership is in a different setting. My hope is that this can all happen without resistance; I am concerned that I may need to have backing from the Positive Military (I.E. WHITE HATS). Given who will be arrested, the higher up the corporate ladder the more likely it will be that these people will actually ‘know’ some of those being arrested. Be calm and reassuring – if anyone is angry or agitated, appeal to their higher conscience and ethics. Even if someone has actually committed white-collar crimes, this is a chance for complete redemption for anyone willing to help to the greatest degree possible.

  1. I intend to make the gravity of the situation apparent, and stress that this is a time where profits can no longer take precedence. My employer (as do most insurers) likes to promote themselves as a force philanthropically, so I’d like to say that this is the time to back up their P.R. with action.
  2. Encourage a short (15-30 minutes) brain-storming session of next steps. My recommendations:
    1. Let me speak to all employees of the organization. Be consistent with the Community Leaders Brief (CLB) but also add specific actions people can do – contact your city councilperson, utilize networking via the local Chamber of Commerce, utilize your network of friends and family to identify a person in law enforcement or public utilities.
    2. Develop public statements for Executives and/or Civic Leaders to make. These statements must be explicitly clear that there will be full cooperation with any investigations of fraud & wrongdoing, but also that these companies must serve the public interest at this time – which means all employees in departments where operations may be suspended do not lose their jobs, but are rather will be compensated for volunteer time in critical areas (i.e. workers/volunteers to set up food & water banks, setting up public Q&A events where law enforcement and/or other experts can speak, setting up neighborhood watch groups, develop plans for continuity of necessary commerce based upon local needs).
    3. Hire back employees who recently lost their jobs and have them join the workforce in the various humanitarian projects. (Note – This is especially true of any ex-employees who may have experience or connections with non-profits such as food-shelves, meal-delivery services, or past National Guard, Military, Law Enforcement, Emergency Medical Care, or Peace Corps experience. These employees will be the most valuable assets within your company because they can immediately begin networking and creating task forces to deal with pressing community issues.)
    4. For my own industry, I will encourage my company and others to develop tools unique to insurers which may be able to somewhat offset the lack of liquidity due to the banks being shut down (see end of document).
    5. Determine the best way to reach others within the insurance industry so the steps taken by my employer can serve as a model for other companies. Honestly, this can happen for any company or organization – this is the start of the greatest grass-roots organization of volunteers in history. Everyone can help if they set their mind to it and are willing to work in an organized fashion with large groups of people.

After reaching out to executives, my hope would be to begin speaking to employees via video conferencing across the company. I’m not sure if all of them can be reached at one time, but I suspect most could be reached within 2 hours even if we have to break it up into 4 half-hour segments. This can be done for any corporation which has major office presence in multiple cities/states/countries. This is an ideal way to begin to reach community leaders in government, law enforcement, and key infrastructure such as utility maintenance.

During these meetings I will elaborate regarding what I know – more importantly what I DON’T KNOW – and what steps people can take collectively to ensure that this period does not result in a complete societal breakdown (i.e. contacting other leaders – provide CLB via company email). Appeal toward people’s aspirations – that this doesn’t need to be the end of the world in any sense. Rather, stress that these are the first steps toward a radically more peaceful world, and that we as a species are ‘growing up’ and becoming more mature. This includes holding people accountable for wrongdoings – such that no one anywhere is above the law. Above all, DO NOT PORTRAY YOURSELF AS AN EXPERT IN ALL THINGS! If you don’t know something is factual, make it clear that you have ‘an understanding’ but not that ‘you are a trained and accredited expert’. No single person can or should attempt to be a messiah or PBS-expert on all things like Doris Kearns Goodwin (If you somehow are reading this, DKG, that’s meant to be a light-hearted joke in a serious document!). Plans will work best if groups of people collaborate together as opposed to ‘going it alone’.

EVENT (3-24 HOURS IN)

Spend the rest of that first day of the reset calling people and coordinating; guidelines would be established – the best persons to contact initially would be friends/family who are in the media, law enforcement, public works, city/county/state government and can quickly spread this information to others.) We want things to spread as quickly as possible – key ‘nodes’ for transmitting information will be of utmost importance.

The idea is not to sit and discuss ‘continuity of business’ for your own company. Rather, the goals would be to establish that:

1)       Your company intends to become part of the solution as opposed to being part of the problem

2)       The leaders of our industry are smart enough to recognize when financial considerations are not as important as ensuring people’s safety, peace of mind, and that critical functions such as emergency care, nutritious food, clean food, electricity, communication channels, law enforcement, fire departments, etc. stay running for all people.

Hence every industry should do whatever it can to ‘keep the lights on’ foremost and worry about the financial repercussions once peace and calm have been established. While I hope my own employer can be held up as a model organization for their efforts and assistance, the idea is that every organization of people can help. This should encourage other companies and organizations to follow suit en masse and build a rapid consensus for business and community leaders to help humanitarian efforts.

This step may take most of the evening and night, because by the next morning there will need to be public announcements regarding the timing of certain humanitarian efforts. It will be critical to establish what must stay functioning – hospitals and clinics, electricity, water/sewage, garbage collection, television, internet, phones – and take decisive steps via announcements as well as visible actions that society will not be allowed to fall apart. This second day will be the most critical, so anyone who can assist in this effort should be prepared to work through the night if at all possible. If we can succeed in keeping the masses calm yet engaged mentally and emotionally, we should be in the clear for the rest of the steps.

EVENT (24 TO 72 HOURS IN)

Once a community, city, state, jurisdiction have established clearly what steps will be taken to maintain critical functioning, the time for action and coordination will come next. These two days will require the largest mobilization of volunteers ever assembled on a global level. There will be a great need for people to help out neighbors, friends, and family, but efforts must be made to reach out to poorer areas as well as to locate and assist the elderly and disabled.

In this step we can hopefully begin the ‘Inner-City Marshall Plan’. Instead of allowing supply disruptions to turn these areas into potential flashpoints like Ferguson, Missouri, we can have a coordinated effort to distribute critical supplies and information. If this is done immediately in most areas – and with a large number of brave volunteers and military/militia types – people can be shown directly that this is not “Meet the new boss, same as the old boss”.

In addition to these efforts, conversations need to start regarding urban renewal projects:

  • “Does the infrastructure need repair?”
  • “Are there are lot of Crystal Meth or Heroin users who need help?”
  • “Are there problems with violent crime, and what resources are needed to address this permanently and peacefully?”
  • “Is there a site where a manufacturing plant can be built for local jobs (i.e. Free Energy Devices)?”

Hopefully this will plant the seed for a new era of cooperation. In my home country of the U.S.A., I have often seen selfishness repackaged as ‘rugged individualism’. This mindset will not help us move forward. While individual rights will be reasserted, the only way we fix our societies and planet is peaceful cooperation – what we face is too big for small groups to tackle. Big ideas that help hundreds or thousands of people are what we need. Always hold to first principles: “Who needs help most urgently?” “What resources do we have and need to address certain problems?”

PROBLEM-SOLVING ON A SCALE NEVER BEFORE ATTEMPTED

The previous text is a high-level summary, but successful implementation will require significant attention to the details. Since these will vary across the world, the most important initial step is simply reaching out quickly to corporate executives and civic leaders in communities around the globe. These initial encounters will need to be brief and high-level; we will tell people that this is the beginning of a much-needed overhaul of our banking and political systems, but that we need everyone possible to cooperate in order to minimize adverse impacts. Be ready to provide a CLB as well as other suggestions regarding whom to contact and what steps to take.

In order to maximize effectiveness, stick to a simple and consistent message. Focus first on those people whom you know will be willing to listen. Later on it will be necessary to move on to other organizations, but this is the primary reason to focus on those closest in proximity to you – everyone knows someone who lives far away. The idea is to ask for help and to get it when it comes to spreading the word. The more people spread the CLB, this document, and other key pieces of information the more rapidly coalitions will form in various jurisdictions to deal with immediate concerns.

Once this initial burst of activity to ‘spread the word’ has occurred during Day 1, then create organized working groups which will coordinate with the military to develop actionable plans. Once these are established, the focus can shift to details, and eventually to solutions both short and long-term. Here are a few ideas which can be quickly established within the first days after the EVENT in almost any community of people:

  • “Meet & Greets” in which people can gather and have military, law enforcement, local government representatives, etc. come to speak and discuss the most urgent local needs as well as bring food to share via a ‘pot-luck’. One model that could be easily adapted across the country would be to use that of National Night Out (http://natw.org/) where streets are blocked off (weather-permitting) and people can get together and talk with neighbors about what is going on.       These can serve as much-needed ‘venting’ sessions as well. Many of the revelations and disclosures will be utterly horrifying to people; I’ve heard of video evidence that is not suitable for children and will likely cause nausea and vomiting. These will not be released publicly prior to the arrests, so I cannot say for myself what these are like. But I’ve read enough to understand what I will be seeing…there will be a lot of need for hugging and consolation of family/friends. It will be that bad – and the people involved will be shocking as well.
  • Have community meals – think of the “Stone Soup” story we’ve all heard as kids. No one person was able to make a tasty meal unto themselves, but once everyone brought a key ingredient, ultimately everyone within that story had a good hot meal for the night.       Even if this is not possible every day, this can be a way for everyone to have a solid meal and join together for a night of conversation. These can also function as ‘group therapy’ sessions so everyone can discuss and come to grips with what’s occurring globally.
  • To the greatest degree possible, be creative in implementing means for businesses to ‘keep their doors open’ and for supply chains (i.e. producers/manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers) to remain functioning. Even though electronic transaction capabilities will be shut down, there are other mechanisms that which can be used to maintain commerce:
    • Monitor and prevent ‘price gouging’ to the greatest degree possible. As an example, during the evening of 9/11 gas prices in my local community went from roughly $1.00 to $6.00. There was a huge panic that set in and cars were lined up for blocks. This needs to swiftly reported and prosecuted lest a chain reaction of profit-seeking behavior cause a complete breakdown of commerce. Especially regarding items people need, prices should remain ‘locked’ to the greatest extent possible.
    • Limit hoarding of critical items by restricting how much people can purchase at one time.       This is not a situation where these supplies will never again be available…it’s just a temporary supply disruption which will be over within a month.
    • Accept checks, cash, gold, & silver as money for purchasing supplies as debit cards, credit cards, and ATMs will not work.
    • Any local chamber of commerce can work with community leaders in a given jurisdiction to temporarily implement a “Scrip Currency” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scrip) which can be used as a form of credit over the financial shutdown. As long as it is accepted by the vast majority of businesses, to the extent supplies exist commerce can be maintained. This can even be extended toward extension of IOUs for businesses such that supplies can still be shipped and distributed as much as possible.

My understanding is that funds exist such that up to $1,000 of credit can be extended for each person as a means to obtain supplies. This could mean that each community would be given funds in the amount of $1,000 per person which can be used to back any local Scrip currency. This could easily restore confidence on a local level such that businesses feel certain they will receive legitimate compensation for any goods or services they provide.

    • Lastly, every business that remains open should keep receipts or other documentation should they have the need to recoup lost income. Given that this reset is necessary due to the criminal activities of a small but astronomically wealthy individuals around the globe, there is a very high likelihood that any lost income can be indemnified using the insurance and legal system.   The wealth of those individuals will be seized and used to pay damages to those affected. However, given the vast scope of the ensuing investigations and auditing of various money trails, it may not arrive overnight. To this extent, each business will have to weigh the pros and cons of ‘staying open. But if you are willing to remain open as a service to your community, it will be better advertising than you could ever purchase.
  • To the extent a critical mass of commerce cannot be maintained, here are other alternatives to help supplies get where they are most needed.
    • Local “Swap Meets” can be created as a means to barter and trade for goods and services.       This will be necessary given the expected supply disruptions. The vast majority of people will not have the necessary supplies to get through several weeks without buying food or toiletries. Furthermore, it’s likely that people who have stocked up will find a few things that they didn’t remember to get. These swap meets can be used to trade critical supplies and even services; to the extent that someone needs help with a project, perhaps people can offer a service such as snow removal, yard work, etc. in return for food or toilet paper.
    • Use existing ‘Food Shelf’ networks as primary distribution centers of supplies.       It is unknown exactly how many ‘supplies’ have been held aside for this massive operation. My understanding is that a lot exists, but it will need to be moved quickly and efficiently from hitherto secret storehouses to various distribution sites within each country. Again, while I’m focusing on my knowledge of the U.S., this should be applicable everywhere – there need to be gathering places where people are able to obtain critical supplies safely.
    • If you are someone who would identify oneself as a ‘prepper’, you probably have supplies for several months or years. I have good news and bad news for you. The bad news – things didn’t go to hell like you’ve been shouting about forever. The good news, you can be a hero in your own community if you are willing to share with others.

This also goes for being willing to teach people useful survival skills such as preparing fires, the identification and gathering of nonconventional but healthy foods, preparation of these foods, and also how to organize neighborhood ‘citzen’s police forces’ to assist the local law enforcement in maintaining civility.

    • Lastly, if you have an object or supply that you are certain you will not need, be willing to simply give it to another person who actually does need it.       This can include simply spending time with people – perhaps one adult will offer to babysit children so other adults are free to work on critical humanitarian projects. Almost every object will be replaceable eventually, and free time will actually exist again as technologies are used to not only expand the workforce but to actually compress the hours any individual needs to work. Ultimately, the most important resources we have as people are each other.       We need treat each other with civility and respect as we learn new ways to simply get along and have a functioning society.

IN LIGHT OF THE DISCLOSURES – A PLEA FOR CIVILITY, PATIENCE, AND UNDERSTANDING

Any of you reading this for the first time on this particular day will likely have your heads spinning since the rug has been pulled out from under you. Once you gain your bearings and fully grasp everything that is going on – and everything that has been going on secretly in the past – you will likely be overwhelmed by a sense of grief. Your sense of reality will implode upon itself as everything you’ve believed to be true will be shattered forever. I know this because it has happened to me at multiple stages of my learning process. This is true of everyone I’ve encountered – all of those colleagues whom I’ve never met in person but have forever shaped how I think and feel about the planet I currently live upon.

Once everything ‘clicks’, there will be a moment when you feel one emotion more intensely than ever before: ANGER

When it hits you – and it will – stop and take a deep breath. This is the moment when every person has to choose how to channel and focus that energy. Do you lash out in a temper tantrum like an angry toddler? Do you crumble to the ground soaked by your own tears? Or do you just sit there – stunned and unable to move?

My recommendation that first time is to let the wave of emotion ride over you, but to do nothing until it subsides. Don’t yell, don’t scream – don’t say anything. Just feel it and let it flow. When you get a chance to calm down, that is when the real work begins.

This may not happen today, my guess is that it will hit everyone differently in the coming weeks given the nearly infinite variety of personalities we humans have. But when the wave hits you again, this time let your emotions flow freely. If you need to stare off blankly into space, if you need to be alone, if you need to cry, feel free to do so. If you need a hug, ask for a hug – even if the only person near you is a complete stranger. We are all brothers and sisters in this strange messed-up reality, and we need to come together as a family to heal.

Part of the healing process will be innumerable publicly televised truth and reconciliation hearings. There’s really no other way, because all of the sordid details cannot and should not be hidden away any longer. The media has been under control for so long that it will be difficult to believe the truth when you see it, but instead of viewing the media collectively as an enemy, look at it as a tool that at long last can allow the truth to come to light. This is our group therapy as a planet – this will be how we heal.

As ‘impossibly evil’ things are shown and proven to be real over and over again, there will be a groundswell building for justice and retribution. There will be a desire for public executions of the worst criminals. My sincere hope is that collectively the populace will exercise caution and proceed slowly on these matters. For starters, I believe a global moratorium should be enacted in all countries on scheduled executions. Seriously, can’t we stop having violent death on this planet for at least a few days or weeks!

Let that stop for a while. I honestly believe that certain people who are deemed ‘guilty’ and were viewed as deserving of capital punishment may end up being key witnesses for some of the crimes against humanity that will come to light. It may even be provable that some are actually innocent, or were at least not in control of their minds at the time they committed their heinous crimes. Look, the ‘switch’ of the proverbial electric chair can be turned on at any time – but at our current level of technology we cannot undo an execution of a wrongly accused person.

We need to exercise patience and not rush to judgment. I distinctly remember hearing the passionate pleas for revenge after all of the death and chaos of 9/11. People were so angry within the U.S. that they wanted to bomb someone – ANYONE – that very day! Now look at all the pain and suffering that has wrought around the world – was any of it worthwhile or necessary? Are we truly happy and better off with the results? Millions dead, entire countries bereft of modern functioning infrastructure. Hundreds of thousands of angry wounded veterans, and scores of suicides among them due to self-hate, poverty, and being permanently disabled. Trillions spent, wasted, stolen – whatever you want to call it. All of it done because of lies, lies, and more lies.

None of that would have been able to happen had there been a collective ‘deep breath’ and a grim determination to actually look at the evidence to figure out what really happened as well as who had the motive and means to pull off the entire operation. We were fools then, and it nearly brought the entire world to the brink of World War III. Let’s not make the same mistake again. Let’s give all willing witnesses and whistleblowers a chance to testify and share their stories. To the extent that previously suppressed evidence comes to light, that evidence needs to be considered and weighed in accordance to other evidence and testimony. People will be coming out of the woodwork for months – finally unafraid to tell their story as they are no longer worried about being killed for what they know.

These voices will need to be heard before we can truly feel that we understand what’s happened and who is ultimately responsible. Even those with decades of experience investigating these crimes will be surprised on certain occasions – it’s inevitable as part of the process of uncovering the truth. We don’t want to resort to the public hysteria of the French Revolution where every nobleman and woman was considered guilty just because of what their status was in society. Let’s figure out if some of the good guys (and women) were actually working secretly with the bad guys. For those dealing in the shady world of ‘Black Ops’, it is hard to walk away completely clean, and it may turn out that someone who is considered ‘guilty’ initially may end up being viewed as a hero because they prevented a full-out nuclear war that would have caused our ultimate extinction.

Along this same vein, I ask everyone to extend this same degree of patience, understanding and forgiveness to family, friends, co-workers, estranged lovers, political rivals, and ultimately even to complete strangers. Everyone on the planet has been subjected to pressures and influences that have caused us to hurt others – sometimes this has been done consciously, but a lot of it has been ‘programmed’ into us as well. We need to look at each other differently – not as separate races or sexes, but as fellow humans. We are all reflections of each other. If someone hurt us prior to today, ask them why they chose to say those hurtful words or do that horrible deed.

I’m not talking about egregious things here such as violent assault or cold-blooded murder here, although our understanding of those things will become far more nuanced in the years to come. But right now, I’m referring to examples more about the stressed-out parent who violently explodes at their kid for getting a speeding ticket, or the boss who is so afraid of losing their job that they scheme to falsely blame one of their employees for a key mistake and then justifies firing them instead. Most of us are not ‘angels’, and many of us have done cruel things to others simply due to a perceived need to maintain one’s lifestyle. Fear of losing what we have can drive almost any person to do despicable things, and it is the rare person who can look in the mirror and say they’ve never done such a thing. Ultimately, we need to take a step back and try to understand each other regarding these most selfish actions; we may find out we are much more able to forgive than we ever thought possible.

As a stark example, even mafia hit men have sometimes committed the most heinous crimes simply to avoid having their loved ones tortured and killed. They got into that particular line of work because they saw a way to take care of their family, and ended up losing their humanity in the process. Sometimes a toxic mix of love and fear can cause us to do horrible things to others. However, after today we no longer have to be afraid. We can be angry, but we no longer have to fear. We can love each other and be loved back in return.

On that note, it’s time to get to work and fix our planet, people! Let’s do this!

Mind Control, Subliminal Messages and the Brainwashing of America


Mind Control, Subliminal Messages and the Brainwashing of America 2

By Carolanne Wright

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

“Is the purpose of the TV ad to make you an informed consumer?” asks Noam Chomsky. “The purpose of the ad is to delude and deceive you with imagery so you’ll be uninformed and make an irrational choice.” 

In October of 2011, the American Academy of Pediatrics issued a warning, advising that children under the age of two should not be exposed to television because it can lead to developmental disorders, delayed speech and sleep problems. Similar concerns have been raised regarding tablet use. Despite that, Media Watch founder Ann Simonton found that advertisers “start targeting children at 9 months. They’ve noted that, by two years old, they can achieve brand loyalty and recognition.” This is especially concerning when we take into account subliminal messaging is unregulated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) not only in advertising, but television and film as well. The Internet has recently come under scrutiny too. We are basically being brainwashed as babies and it continues throughout our lives.

Add to this governmental propaganda and we would be hard-pressed to have an uninfluenced and unique thought about anything. And, sad to say, it has only become worse…

In 2013, the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) revoked a longstanding federal law that made it illegal for the U.S. Department of State to broadcast within the United States internally-created propaganda designed for international use. Officials claim it’s a move towards transparency, but critics believe it’s yet another tool to sway American opinion in the political sphere. With technological advances and acceleration of the global market, opportunities abound for advertisers, governments and media empires to exert their influence over the populous in ways that were unheard of a generation ago.

To Jeff Warrick, this is unacceptable. A former advertising executive turned whistleblower filmmaker, he spent seven years creating the provocative documentary, Programming the Nation (which is featured below) in an attempt to answer the question once and for all: “Are subliminal messages fact or folklore?” What he found will shock you.

Subliminal Messages: Harmless or Damaging?

“You need to make people feel at risk in order to promote sales. Happy people don’t buy stuff they don’t need.”

Some would argue that subliminal messages found in the realm of advertising are not all bad. Take for example legendary sound engineer, Mark Mothersbaugh, who established himself within the world of radio and TV advertising. He worked on the animated TV ads for Hawaiian Punch, where a cartoon character donning a Hawaiian shirt punches another character. Mothersbaugh decided to add a sub-audible voice whispering “Sugar Is Bad for You.” According to Mothersbaugh, after watching the test screening, company executives enthusiastically applauded the ad, completely missing the contradictory subliminal message!

But as Warrick soon discovered in the making of Programming, subliminal messages can easily border on the sinister, as is the case with “psyops” utilized by the Pentagon to influence mass media — which just happened to be in direct violation of the now defunct 1948 Smith-Mundt Act that “prohibits using propaganda techniques to target a domestic audience.” Some of the most common subliminal messages promote sexual violence. Oftentimes, these messages can lead to horrible crimes — a chilling example is with serial killer Ted Bundy, who maintained that he was largely influenced by TV advertising which encourages brutality towards women.

“As Programming notes, much of the “news” we are exposed to is actually cleverly disguised corporate advertising and covert government propaganda created by PR firms and distributed to commercial news outlets in the form of Video News Releases. John Stewart and Steven Colbert aren’t the only sources of “fake news” on TV: It’s just that they are up-front about their antics.” [source]

Politicians certainly aren’t above resorting to subliminal messages. The Republican Party (GOP) was caught using a subliminal message in an election ad attacking Democrats. The words “Democrats” and “Bureaucrats” scrolled across a dark screen at the end of the ad, but then another word flashed on the screen for 1/30th of a second, rendering it invisible to the naked eye. The word? Rats. Fortunately, with the advent of Internet technology, the blatant misuse of political advertising by the GOP was detected using a “freeze-frame” button during computer playback.

However, the Internet itself has its own set of problems where mind control is concerned. Writes Nicholas West of the Activist Post:

“Flicker rate tests show that alpha brain waves are altered, producing a type of hypnosis — which doesn’t portend well for the latest revelation that lights can transmit coded Internet data by “flickering faster than the eye can see.” The computer’s flicker rate is less, but through video games, social networks, and a basic structure which overloads the brain with information, the rapid pace of modern communication induces an ADHD state. A study of video games revealed that extended play can result in lower blood flow to the brain, sapping emotional control.”

Where does this leave us? A choice between manipulated puppets doing the bidding of our advertising, corporate and governmental overlords or free-thinking individuals who shield themselves from all forms of media?

At the very least, we should all seriously consider “killing our televisions.”
